COVID-19 UPDATE

October 26, 2020

 

Dear Residents and Staff,

I want to thank all of the tenants, staff, visitors, and partners of Baptist Retirement Communities of Georgia for remaining vigilant during these turbulent times. Our staff and tenants have found innovative ways to remain connected, while continuing to social distance. Although connection is important, I want to strongly encourage each of you to continue adhering to the CDC guidelines to best mitigate viral spread.

Based upon the updated information that has been received, Baptist Retirement Communities has created the following guidelines as listed below:

Internal Groups Gatherings may increase up to 25 people, but individuals must remain 6 feet apart. All participants are strongly encouraged to wear face masks, adhere to cough/sneeze etiquette, and follow proper handwashing procedures.

Apartment Tours have resumed at all properties. All guests are required to complete health screening, including temperature check, and to wear masks (gloves if available) during time of visit.

On-site, Internal Vendor Work Internal vendor has resumed with specific guidelines.  All vendors are required to wear mask (gloves if available) during time of on-site, internal visit.  As in the past, the vendor company must provide BRCGA with a written safety protocol that addresses COVID 19

Tenants that have been traveling abroad and ALL (including apartments) New Move-Ins  Tenants are strongly encouraged to wear mask (gloves if available) while on any of the BRCGA properties for a minimum of 5 days after arrival while in gathering areas, activity buildings, or apartment buildings. 

Resident Families
Resident family members are encouraged to wear masks, practice cough/sneeze etiquette, and practice social distancing. If family members or guests show signs of illness or have a fever, they will be asked to reschedule their visit. We strongly encourage you to find alternative methods of connecting as visiting a loved one in their apartment or cottage is more close contact than normal and could possibly increase risk factors.

Palmetto Park Dining Room
Palmetto Park Dining Room will remain closed until a full release of the Shelter in Place to safely serve residents without social distancing guidelines.  Renovations will begin in main dining room within the next few weeks.  All vendors are required to wear mask (gloves if available) during time of on-site, internal visit, when outside of the dining room.  As in the past, the vendor company must provide BRCGA with a written safety protocol that addresses COVID 19. The main dining room will be opened on a later date to be determined.  Management is awaiting the time frame from vendor to begin millwork.

Outside Volunteers or Groups
Outside volunteers and groups have been temporarily suspended until further notice.

Off-Campus Trips
Only required life-sustaining trips are permitted such as to the grocery store, once a week for communities without dining services only. All tenants are strongly encouraged to wear a mask while traveling on the bus and while out of the community. Continue to adhere to handwashing/antibacterial gel, cough/sneeze etiquette, and social distancing. Do not attend off-campus bus trips if you are experiencing any COVID-related signs of illness. All other scheduled trips have been temporarily postponed until further notice.

Thank you for your continued support during these trying times.  We ask for your continued prayers as management begins to slowly reintroduce a more normal routine into the communities.  Please continue to do your best in adhering to the Mask/Glove Protection, Handwashing Procedures, and Cough/Sneeze Etiquette that staff and residents were initially trained on until further notice.

We appreciate your continued flexibility and patience as we all strive to keep our BRCGA communities healthy and well!

May God Continue to Bless and Protect each of you,

Sharalene Roper, Vice President
